Description Vincent Danen 2012-06-14 01:29:15 UTC
Mediawiki 1.17.5, 1.18.4, and 1.19.1 were released today to fix a XSS vulnerability in the useland http parameter [1].

[1] https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36938

While 1.16.x isn't explicitly mentioned (and is what is currently shipping in Fedora), the liklihood of it being affected is high.  It is also really old and out-of-date, so it might be prudent to update to one of the supported versions.
